Well, I wrote the poll, and I think it's reasonably safe to say that I'm not against Perl 6. :)

When you get right down to it, some people will hate perl 6 without even trying it, the same as some people will love it without trying it. And after trying it some people will love it, and some will hate it. Most people probably won't invest all that much emotion into it, though some will. I fully expect someone to accuse us of being pawns of some conspiracy or other to destroy perl. (I shall be quite disappointed if that doesn't happen, actually, so if someone could please pencil that into their calendar? Thanks)

If perl 6 fulfills a need better than the alternatives, it'll get used, and if it doesn't it won't. It's reasonable to to expect that a need is seen, since everyone involved has better things to do with their lives than go chasing software will-o-wisps.

Relax, it's just 1s and 0s. There's a limit to how much excitement it's worth.
